Jim was born and raised in St. Paul, Minnesota. In 2005, he took a class called Writing From Your Life, which focused on creative nonfiction. The class rekindled his love for writing. In 2009, he enrolled in AllWriters' Workplace and Workshop which provided a peer critique group that encouraged and stretched him as a writer.
Jim loves outdoor sports. It was his love of camping in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area in northern Minnesota that led him to write a memoir about trips he took to the area in the late '80's. The book was published by eLectio Publishing in June of 2014.
Jim's poetry collection, Written Life, was recently accepted for publication by eLectio Publishing and will be released on 3/31/2015. More information about his upcoming book release events can be found on his Events page.

Kira Johns is the author of the motorcycle club novel series Satan's Rebels MC.
She is currently writing a spin-off series entitled Forgotten Souls MC.
Here is how Kira Johns describes herself and her journey into writing:
Writing is my escape, just as reading is. When I read a good book, I become a part of it - the sights, the sounds, every aspect of the book. Twists and turns, raw emotion and pure lust.
When I began writing the Satan's Rebels MC Series, it was just another project. Something to pass time and let the creative juices flow. With a little push from the people closest to me, I uploaded Book One in the series and crossed my fingers. I never expected the reception I received and before long, I was publishing Books Two and Three.
So who is Kira Johns? I was born and raised in the southeastern part of the United States. During the day, I work as a Paralegal in the Criminal Defense field. I also have a background in law enforcement and spent many years prior to that tending bar. Now I am married to a wonderful man who is extremely supportive of me and my writing ventures and together we have two great kids that are the center of our universe, as well as my own personal zoo - a dog, four birds, a chinchilla, Bearded Dragon, Albino California King Snake, a ferret and a hedgehog, we have quite a collection.
When I'm not working or writing, I enjoy spending my free time in the great outdoors. The beach, the mountains - it doesn't matter as long as their are sights to be seen, whether on the back of a motorcycle or on a boat. Competition shooting is our other passion, with the entire family joining in.

By the Winner of two Readers’ Choice Awards from The House of Crime & Mystery... The Story The hardworking men and women at the Port of Long Beach, California have no idea what’s waiting for them in the deep water. Tugboat Captain Ed Angelus discovers the horror first in a death match aboard the Lady Bulldog, a high-tech z-drive vessel. But when the Coast Guard and Homeland Security arrive on the scene, there’s no trace, and Ed is declared delusional and unfit for duty. A few months later Ed’s former crewmen dredge up something chilling from the depths of Alamitos Bay—something horrific and possibly paranormal. Soon, the truth turns into ugly lies by authorities unwittingly manipulated by a dirty bureaucrat masterminding the investigation. Overnight, Ed finds himself a public enemy at the center of extraterrestrial black ops—outrunning the law until he can warn the world.

Vestal, NY – When we see strength in someone else we are attracted to it; we admire it. Unfortunately, many of us fall into the trap of perceiving ourselves through the eyes of others. We have conditioned ourselves to seek this approval, disapproval, acceptance, and rejection, but these ideological perspectives are based on a lie. If we can learn to unconditionally accept, to approve and love our own person, then will we begin to recognize that we do not need anyone else’s approval or acceptance.
According to Dr. Asa Don Brown we all deserve happiness, peace, love and kindness; the key is to “Love thyself.” Dr. Brown is a psychologist, speaker, advocate, and the author of Waiting to Live, an inspirational book that examines the concepts of unconditional love and forgiveness.
“The reason I write, is to explore ideas, concepts, and effective ways of living,” says Dr. Brown. “For me, writing is a resource of hope and it is an effective way of reaching others.”
Growing up, Dr. Brown says he was held to very high standards academically and it became a constant source of stress throughout his life. But when he began to recognize his successes and failures didn’t equate to who he really was, he began living life more fulfilled and full of grace.
“If I hadn’t been conditioned this way when I was younger who knows what man I would be today,” says Dr. Brown. “I wanted to understand why I felt this way. Waiting to Live is about what I’ve learned along the way through psychology and religion. It’s about hope, love, peace and kindness.”
